These companies already trust FlowShare to create guides that run their business

"When I used to work on a relatively complex step-by-step documentation, it took me around two days. With FlowShare, it's less than an hour and a half. It doesn't get much easier than that."
Thorsten Raeker
IT, Bauvista
"In the end, we saved a lot of money simply because we were able to speed up the documentation process. Without FlowShare, our ERP migration and documentation would probably have taken half a year longer."
Daniel F.
ERP Business Process Manager
"I need only 10-15 % of the time it took me in the old days with paint and stuff."
Andreas K.
IT Project Manager
"Even when I had little time, the documentation was done within 20 seconds. And in such a way that colleagues and other employees could also make good use of it."

CEO, BDAE Group

The way companies document their processes is dead

Here’s what’s happening in most companies:

No standard process for documentation

Everyone documents their processes as it suits them (if ever) on TOP of day-to-day business.

The processes are only in their heads.

No one really knows how a particular process works in the company, because it has never been documented.

They have a migration project and no clue how to document hundreds of new processes

They need to document hundreds of processes during a software rollout (ERP, CRM, …) but don’t really know how without blowing the timeline and budget of the migration project. ​

It takes them weeks to create guides

They spend weeks creating guides manually with Snipping tools, Word, etc. or complex authoring tools.

They don't even start

Most employees don’t even start documenting because it’s so tedious and time consuming.

Their guides are quickly outdated

Due to updates their documentations or training videos are quickly outdated and no longer usable.​

There is no consistency

All the company's manuals look completely different - sometimes the image takes a whole page, sometimes it’s the size of a stamp, branding is off.

Waste budget on additional training

They have to hire expensive trainers due to insufficient user manuals just to refresh software skills.

It takes weeks to onboard new employees

It takes weeks to onboard new employees in software processes - and they're not productive when looking over the shoulder of current employees who also are kept away from their actual job.​

No one watches the training videos

They use videos to train their staff but employees come up with questions constantly showing that no one watches the trainings. ​

Doing documentation doesn’t mean you have to take the team away from their current responsibilities, write out every single step of the process and waste hours of your valuable time to keep up or up to date.

There's a better way to create guides             user manuals processes     

With FlowShare you go through your task as you normally would and it creates a step-by-step guide including screenshots, arrows and text instructions. It documents your entire process as you do it.

FAQ

We found that most companies don’t have streamlined documentation processes. They need to document every once in a while and there are no uniform templates, no tools that accelerate the process. Sometimes during training they just take notes and try to recreate the processes afterwards. If this is you, then you will definitely save time with FlowShare. Don’t take our word for it, see what our customers say about efficiency.

FlowShare does not make any changes in system directories and only changes the registry in its own directories. Although the Windows Smart Defender might pop up – it is a regular procedure – FlowShare is perfectly safe and should withstand even the strictest IT-regulations. We have specifically put together a document for your IT to rule out any questions about risks: DOCUMENT IT LINK HERE

If you still can’t install it due to security policies in your company, write us an email and we’ll send you a zip Archive you can use flowshare from and still get your free trial!

Yes, once installed, FlowShare is like a black box :-). It is a completely locally operated and operable desktop software. Your captured processes and exported guides remain on your device. You alone decide with whom you share your recorded Flows or exported guides.

Not currently and not planned. Unfortunately, we can’t help Mac or Linux users. Check out our article on documentation tools that also run on Mac.

Senior citizens use FlowShare to transfer their know-how. If they can do it, so can you.

This depends on several factors: your screen resolution, the number of steps and the chosen export format. Orientation example: A 200-step Word document at HD resolution is approximately 19 MB in size. PS: We are already working on a compression to keep even longer instructions small!

Our custom TrackingEngine that FlowShare is built on allows us to access even the most customized applications that run on windows and in browsers. 

While we can’t promise a 100 percent compatibility with ALL applications around the world, we can promise that during your trial you can find out within minutes if FlowShare can automatically capture the button and element descriptions from your application. The only requirement on your device is a 64-bit system.

Size should not be an issue unless you are using a device from the 90’ 🙂 Compared to a 500 mb video you would have of your process, you’ll have a 20 page PDF guide. 

The file size depens on 

  • your screen resolution
  • number of steps in your guide
  • chosen export format

For reference:. a 200-steps Word document at HD resolution is approximately 19 MB in size. 

No. FlowShare does not make any changes in system directories and only changes the registry in its own directories. The introduction of FlowShare in your company should therefore succeed smoothly even under strict IT-regulations.
